    We're three days into the fall season premieres and already I'm feeling overwhelmed. Luckily the folks over at Vulture have put together a handy guide for telling which show is which. It includes debut dates, times and networks for each of them, so you won't miss anything that looks exciting-- and you can easily avoid what doesn't.  

  • Fox and the Comedy Hat Trick

    September 18, 2013 | 10:26 am

    There was a period from approximately 2009 through the end of 30 Rock's run last year when NBC was the undisputed queen of Thursday nights. Between Tina Fey's smart skewering of her own genre, Amy Poehler's hilarious turn as the too-perky, scarily driven Leslie Knope in Parks and... read on

    On Sept 29, 2013, TV will take a giant shit on everyone.

    Sept. 29 will host series and season premieres, one historic series finale and a rousing day of Week 4 Sunday football. This could all get very messy if not approached with skill, grace, and above all, a plan. So I’ve... read on

    One of the most anticipated shows returning to the air this fall is Showtime's acclaimed drama Homeland, which had an uneven second season after a brilliant beginning. That premiere happens on Sunday, September 29th, but while you're waiting check out John Lahr's profile of star... read on

  • Sneak Peak: The Mindy Project

    The Mindy Project has just never gelled for me. I want to like it-- I want to love a snarky comedy about a professionally successful woman whose love life isn't a total catastrophe, a show written by a woman of color so that she could finally a play a role other then sidekick,... read on
